Michael Andersen

ILP Legal Practitioner Director at Maelstrom Lawyers

12 years PQE
Bundall, QLD, AU


Michael Andersen founded Maelstrom Lawyers in January 2015 after working for almost a decade in two of Queensland's leading personal injury law firms Trilby Misso Lawyers and Slater & Gordon Lawyers.

Michael handled a complex portfolio ranging from faulty products, to workplace injuries, to injuries in public areas but his speciality was road traffic accidents.

In last decade Michael has not once been taken to trial with all of his matters resolving by agreement with the insurer. This includes highly complex matters where responsibility for the accident was in dispute, significant pre-existing injuries were present, absolute defences were raised by the insurer and so on.

It is through Michael's ability to deconstruct a complex situation and then piece it back together with evidence based, practical, real-life advice that helps insurers to thoroughly understand his client's claim and negates the need to progress to trial.

If you have been injured and you want practical, pragmatic, straight-talking advice then you should speak with Michael.
